Hologic reported revenue decreases for the second quarter of the 2022 fiscal year. The company said that lower sales of COVID-19 assays in its Diagnostics division was a major factor in the decline.
The company reported second-quarter revenue to be $1.436 billion, which represents a decrease of 6.6% for the quarter (end-March 26) compared with sales of $1.538 billion in the same period the year before. Hologic said the decline was primarily driven by lower sales of COVID-19 assays compared with the prior-year period.
However, the company also said that revenue was "significantly" higher than its guidance of $1.25 billion to $1.3 billion provided last quarter.
Not including revenue from COVID-19 diagnostic tests, the company's revenue in its Diagnostics division was $290.4 million, up 2.8% compared with sales of $282.5 million in the same period the year before. Including COVID-19 diagnostics, revenues in the division fell 7.3%.
